When I first saw this, I thought it had it be a joke... but it's true. The actual mascot of East High School in Rochester, New York is the Orientals. Not the Tigers, or the Mustangs, or the Wildcats. The Orientals. So, say, during football season, or basketball season, opposing teams play against the East Orientals. You can even get your East Orientals apparel here. However, East's mascot is an eagle. What?Me too. I'd also like to note the inspirational description of East High's student body from its Wikipedia page, which notes: "The ethnic make up of East High School's student population is roughly 65% black, 25% Hispanic, and 10% white. The diversity of the school's student body is one of its many strengths. The student body is well known for the many multi-racial friend groups that have become well known in the school and in the city." That sounds nice. I think we should start an official "Multi-Racial Friend Group" on Facebook.
Some Googling reveals that there's another East High School in Akron, Ohio -- also known as the home of the Orientals. I'm not making this up! Believe it or not, their mascot is Chang the Dragon. Seriously. To top it all off, the school's website is wonderfully adorned with our favorite faux Asian font. They've apparently been the Orientals for many, many years... and everybody's cool with it. I love America.
